USA Today reports that in New York City the Times Square Everything business group and the City of New York Department of Sanitation are helping residents to give themselves the gift of forgetting bad memories. These two groups are setting up shredders and recycling bins in Times Square Visitors Center for an hour on December 28, 2018, to get rid of embarrassing photos, negative memos, failed projects, and anything disposable. A grand prize of $250 will be given to the person voted most creative in shredding or recycling bad memories.

What a neat idea for forgetting the past. The Apostle Paul was involved in persecuting and killing Christians. When God called him into the kingdom of God, Paul could have spent his time meditating on the wrong things he did and remained paralyzed with guilt, shame, self-hatred, low self-esteem, negativism or self-pity over his bad behavior. Instead he chose through the power of the Holy Spirit to meditate on good things and release himself for mighty use by God. Paul tells us to “Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice” (Philippians 4:4). The Apostle Paul did not let past mistakes or failures stop him from maturing in Jesus Christ. Give yourself the gift of the attitude of Apostle Paul. “I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward” (Philippians 3:13-14). Paul also recognized that God choose him because he was so bad, God was able to show His matchless grace (1 Timothy 1:15-16) as an example and encouragement to believers throughout the ages. If Paul can be used by God, so can I!
Vanish Everything That’S Bad, Welcome Everything That’S Good. Wish You A Very Happy New Year 2019.
May Your New Year Dawn Be….Peaceful And Bright. Full Of Hopes And Possibility !
Have you gone through a divorce, a death in the family, a job loss, illness, rejection, loneliness, persecution, loss of valuable possessions or a bad experience that still torments you? These types of experiences need to be shredded out of your mind in terms of focusing on guilt, shame, self-hatred, self-pity, low self-esteem, negativism and any other thought pattern that does not give God the glory. Jesus Christ went to a cross in Calvary, Israel more than 2,000 years ago to pay the debt owed God the Father for all the wrong thoughts and wrong behaviors and shortcomings (sins) of the people God chose to spend eternal life with Him. He did not die for you to get stuck on sin and shortcomings. God has forgiven us and released us to be transformed in His image. Sometimes we need to do things like the NYC shredding day and physically make a break with mistakes, failures and disappointments. Even when a loved one dies, we are not to dwell in grief indefinitely. Moses was a great leader of the Israelites. When he died, God said do not grieve for Moses past 30 days (Deuteronomy 34:8), and He told Joshua to move on with the Israelites into the promised land (Joshua 1).

When God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, one God as in 1 X 1 X 1 = 1, comes to live inside a person, God is moving out the person’s human nature. So negative mindsets must be replaced with positive ones. God has a mindset that nothing is impossible for Him. That’s pretty positive. Is your mind set on the God who can do anything or the limits of your ability or situation? After you have shredded the old mindsets, get ready to acquire the new. Renew your mind with the Word of God. “Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye (your conscience) is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its office, your body is full of darkness” (Luke 11:34). Satan, the enemy of God and people, wants you to dwell on your sins and shortcomings. This dishonors God. God has already gained the victory over all sin and shortcomings. God knew everything you have done, are doing and will do, and He choose you for His kingdom anyway. God’s people must walk in the victory He purchased for us at the cross. Our conscience and mind are fulfilling their role when we operate in the joy of the Lord. No matter what happens in life, find something specific to praise and worship God. Can’t seem to think of something good that happened today? Remember something good that happened yesterday and praise and worship God for it. Praise God for the testimonies in the Bible. Praise God for the testimonies in your life or the life of someone close to you.
If You Asked Me For My New Year Resolution, It Would Be To Find Out Who I Am.
Learn From Yesterday, Live For Today, Hope For Tomorrow.
Get your mind off of your problems and limits. Focus on God and His mission for you. “Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be)” (Matthew 28:19-20).
This Is A New Year, A New Beginning And Things Will Change.
Everyday Is A New Opportunity To Have A Fresh Start. Happy New Year 2019.
God does not want us to focus on ourselves. Meditating on bad memories can lead to self-absorption. The prescription for this negative mindset is to “Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit). The Lord is near [He is coming soon]” Philippians 4:5
Ask God for a greater manifestation of the fruit of self-control given by the Holy Spirit. Ask God to use this fruit to stop meditating on negative experiences. You need the power of God to change your mind; the human mind does not want to think like God. Try shredding the symbol of a negative experience. Today is a new day that God has granted you. Do not allow Satan to steal the victory Jesus Christ already won for us by operating another day meditating on a bad experience. Too many people are going to hell. Too many believers in God are not operating in the fullness of all God has given. Mature Christians are needed to cultivate and harvest disciples. Shred the past and press on to all God has in store for you and those He has placed in your sphere of influence. Focus on God.
“Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible and immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever (to the ages of ages). Amen (so be it),” 1 Timothy 1:17 (Amplified Bible).It does not hurt to send a Happy New year 2019 message to someone you didn't contact for a long time. What better reason to share a few nice words with a dear friend than the new year? 31 December is the day in which we leave the old grumpiness and everything that was bad in 2018 to wait the new year with a completely different mood. New year greeting cards are the best way to do that, as your mood is given by the happiness of the people you surround yourself with.
